Letter from our Executive Director – May 2022

May 12, 2022

Dear Residents and Families of Dania,

I hope you are all doing well.  I would like to provide you with some updates from our campus of care.

I am pleased to report that over the last month we only had one staff case of COVID-19 at Dania Home.  Residents continue to be COVID-free at that site along with all of Dania Manor residents and staff.  I am thankful to our Leadership Team, Staff and our families for following the expected practices and the advice of Fraser Health and BC Centre of Disease Control in containing and preventing any further transmission.

Also, the Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry announced April 8, 2022 as the date where restrictions for social visits would be lessen at long term care homes.  This order was to allow for more family members to visit their loved ones aside from their designated and essential visitors.  This program has been successful at Dania Home in that residents are much happier and the scheduled visits have also enabled our screeners and cleaners to better plan and prepare for the increased number of visitors to help reduce the risk of possible transmission.  The screeners continue to ask visitors the standard COVID screening questions and for their vaccination status as well as conduct a rapid antigen test upon arrival.  We encourage you to continue monitoring our COVID-19 status at www.dania.bc.ca for any new updates.

Lastly, I would like to invite you to attend our next family council meeting on Monday, May 16, 2022, at 6pm at Dania Home or virtually for those unable to attend in person.  Refreshments will be available to all of you that evening. Please find enclosed the Zoom meeting details below:
